Will the bearring and weld hole if you take the crank out and but in a jackshaft? Also does regular bike chain work or is it to weak?
Interesting given the RPMS to power ratio - and CC. Sounds almost like a licenced version of one of the old Villiers...?Have one of those myself. Pretty durable little engines. 98cc, and they are 3 hp but at 4400 rpm. Also have an old bike sitting around that has a retro look to it. I've been thinking about putting them together too. Engine is fairly compact, but in my case I will have to shorten the crankshaft to fit between the pedals. I'm thinking direct belt drive on mine with about a 14 inch driven pulley, it came out to about 35 or so mph at max rpm. Just need some ambition. Keep us apprised of your progress.
Yup, actually the governor was the original reason I bought it. I planned on using it on an alternator for a constant voltage output on the electric. It is easily disabled by connecting a throttle cable to the carb butterfly though. Geez, what happened to the idea of saving money by riding a bike?also the motor is self throttled at the time i may be able to use that at start up, like for chain saws have the smae try og thing but only at 1/2 throttle.
